Skinny Batches Review and Giveaway

Being on a diet is tough right? You might constantly feel hungry and those cravings just don't go away. It's carrot sticks, low-fat yogurt, and a 100 gallon jug of water on the menu for you today! You might feel like your life is over, and of course you can't even think about having any sweets! Skinny Batches changes everything!



Skinny Batches offers high taste, low calories, and zero guilt delicious treats. Each treat is only 45 calories! How can you say no to that? Whether you like oatmeal raisin cookies, mocha flavored goodies, or banana and chocolate chip delights, Skinny Batches is basically your dessert batch. :)

I was sent a container of salted janets, a variety bag of oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip and plain cookies. Lastly, I received a container of banana chocolate crumbies and Mocha crumbies.


A little bit of cakiness, a little cream cheesiness, and a little bit of streusel makes one big bite of good! …or two littler bites… These chocolate and banana crumbies are delicious!

At less than 100 calories for two of these delights, you can have the treat and throw away the guilt!

Available in a variety of flavors, some are seasonal, some aren’t… Chocolate Banana, Pear (it’s pretty awesome), Coffee, Mocha, White Chocolate Berry, Ginger (seasonal), and we’re always coming up with new flavors, so you’ll never be bored! SOY FREE (taken from website.)



The Salted Janets most sophisticated sugar cookie you’ll ever eat! A crispy exterior with a light chewy interior, brimming with layered flavors of vanilla, browned butter, and brown sugar, topped with a sprinkle of fleur de sel for that sweet’n'salty finish. Complex yet harmoniously balanced, these may just become your new favorite brown sugar cookie! …and we suspect it’ll even convert those who claim sugar cookies are boring! A wonderful dessert or snack… at 45 calories each, they are a guilt-free treat to tantalize the taste buds and soul. SOY and NUT FREE. (taken from website.)



The Mocha Crumbie packs an intense coffee flavor, paired with dark chocolate swirled into the cream cheesey layer… like a latte in a bite! Each Crumbie is only 45 calories, so go ahead and try one… and throw away the guilt! SOY and NUT FREE


Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, these thin cookies pack a buttery note of caramelized toffee flavor. This sampler pack allows you to enjoy them plain and unadulterated, or brimming with raisins, or loaded with 60% dark chocolate chips. Something for everyone in this goodie bag! The plain and raisin cookies are soy free.

The chocolate banana crumbies were great. I loved that I could have one or two of those as a snack and not break my diet. It was wonderful! They have such an interesting and unique texture. They are cakey yet streusel-y yet awesome! I love how fluffy and soft they are. They are bite-sized and great for on the go. The flavor of chocolate and banana is present, but not overly strong at all. The flavors balance out well and really compliment each other. Who doesn't love banana and chocolate together?

The variety pack of cookies were great too. The cookies are much flatter than normal, and more crunchy which I loved. The oatmeal raisin had such a delicious flavor. Next to chocolate, it's my favorite. The oatmeal was chewy and fresh and I love the sweet raisins paired with it. Just wonderful! The chocolate cookie was my favorite though. It had just enough chocolate in it to satisfy my sweet tooth, but it didn't go overboard in any way. The chocolate was sweet and just excellent. The plain cookie was good when you want something simple, and don't want any added ingredients getting in your way of enjoying a cookie.

I did not like the mocha crumbies. I am not a fan of mocha or coffee flavored, but I know many people would love these. They have the same consistency as the banana chocolate crumbies.

Lastly, I tried the Salted Janets. These cookies were addicting! I loved the combination of vanilla, brown sugar, and browned butter together. The light dusting of salt on the top was definitely an added touch I've never experienced before. It brought the cookie up a notch in cookie world and gave it that added bonus. It sounds like it wouldn't be good, but it goes great with the sweetness of the cookie. I loved how the Salted Janets were crispy and chewy at the same time, what a winning combination!
